We didn't do any EMDR this week, and I think that the reason is because I've started to experience the effects of EMDR. These memories that EMDR is suppose to bring back...it hasn't been happening while in the T's office necessarily. I've been more easily triggered by other events that bring memories and feelings back that I had never contemplated before.
This isn't very pleasant, and my T said that she doesn't think we're completely done yet. I'm prepared now, though. She says she still sees a pretty big blockage when it comes to dealing with the pain of my past as far as the memories and the feelings go, so we're going to take a while off (no time specified), and then go at it again for a session or two. She's pretty confident, at this point, that is all it will take.
Of course, I always have the option to say "no", and the way I feel right now, I need to get my feet back under myself before we do this again.
I'm pretty exhausted all around right now due to the amount I've been working, the stress I've been having at work, and the new emotions that are coming up.
Revenge is nothing more than another way of perpetuating abuse.
What the world needs now
Is some new words of wisdom
Like la la la la la la la la la.
Having a friend who will keep a secret for you is worthless compared to a friend who won't keep a secret from you.
